Business Change Director Jobs
Every business needs to embrace change to make sure it stays on top of its game into the future. Businesses that are serious about change dedicate teams to that very task to identify issues holding the company back and put measures in place to make them work more efficiently. Depending on the size and complexity of the company, the team will have general operatives, managers and at the top of the pile, a business change director. This director sits on the board and makes decisions based on the company’s strategy and the information he or she gets from the team on the ground.
The business change director is in charge of seeing through changes in the company. Whetherl personally laying down plans or whether delegating them to the managers who will see it through varies from company to company. However, it is the director’s ultimate responsibility to see change happen and to ensure that the results benefit the company.
The skills required
Managing change in a company requires a host of skills, from the purely mathematical and analytical to the effective management of people, as it’s ultimately the workforce who have to implement change and who are most affected by it. You ideally have experience at board level of directing change in an appropriately sized organization, although some companies do look at experienced and talented business change managers who have successfully delivered projects to companies.
Experience of working in the same industry as that in which the position is vacant will be of great benefit. All industries have unique blends of infrastructure and culture unique to them, and it may not be easy taking the experience of overseeing change in one industry to another. However, an ability to demonstrate that you are flexible and have a brilliant grasp of business change will be enough for you to be considered in many companies.
Business Change Director Jobs in Southport
If you’re scouring maps of Devon, Dorset or Sussex searching for Southport, stop now. It’s most definitely in the northern half of England, about halfway between Liverpool and Blackpool. Like the famous towered resort, it’s a tourist town, with miles of beach and the usual seaside attractions like boating lakes, a pier, a promenade and a famous model village. However it has close links with the city to its south, not least because both are in Merseyside.
The town grew up during the Victorian period as a fashionable spa town, and much of the architecture remains on the front. As workers’ holidays got a foothold, the town, with its good rail links, became a popular destination for the workers of places such as Liverpool, Preston, Wigan and Bolton to spend a week or a weekend in summer. With little of a manufacturing base, the town’s existence was threatened in the 60s and 70s as tourists got the option of flying to Spain or Greece instead of staying in Britain, but it managed to survive where others failed by focusing on short breaks and holding events such as air shows, flower shows and festivals.
Southport is best known in the area as having a large population of affluent people. It’s a favourite home of Liverpool and Everton footballers, as well as other celebrities, particularly those from the North West. There’s a thriving night life, with a wealth of bars, restaurants and clubs. Although it is not a traditional industrial town, sometimes Business Change Director positions do come up in the Southport area. Tourist towns do require a good deal of movement of goods to service both the local population and the visitors. There are frequently building and civil engineering projects in the region, too.
